The Better Technology Awards aim to encourage design & marketing of technology related products to assist persons with a disability. The Awards are made on a biennial basis at the Australian Assistive Technology Conference in both Commercial & Prototype categories.
The Commercial category is for a product that is in its initial production run or has been on the market for less than 12 months. The Prototype category is for a product in its production stage, prior to commercial production.
The product to be assessed for the award consists of the whole package available to the end user. This includes quality control systems, maintenance support, product sales literature and packaging where appropriate.
